    Default Would like all the advice you can give!

    I am currently a national guard soldier and have been for six years. I am part of Illinois 5th Cerf-p and am a subject matter expert on my side of things. I have taken several courses (some even twice) such as confined space, structural collapse, rope rescue ops and tech, hazmat, nims courses etc. I have always thought of being a firefighter just never pursued it. But now im going to. I also currently work full time for Cerf-p right now. So if you have any advice to help me along the way please. Things that I definetly would like comment on is what are the best areas to test (yes I am willing to relocate, would prefer to actually). Also along with emt what are some college courses that would make me more valuable. Thank you and I appreciate any imput that I recieve. I also have worked hand in hand with mabas and alot of their guys for alot of training so I feel like I have pretty good refrences that know of my knowledge and skill set.

    Texas is the best state as far as firefighter opportunities. I believe San Antonio is about to open up their process in July from what I hear and u don't need any certain to apply there just like 15 college credits I believe. Other cities who do not require certs are Dallas, Austin, Houston, mesquite, Plano, garland, Arlington, and I'm sure I'm missing some but those are the main ones.

    Prepare yourself for the stresses of the hiring process. The waiting, not knowing, anticipation, anxiety, and rumors surrounding the various steps in the hiring process can be pretty stressful. You seem to have a great background, and understand the focus necessary to become a Firefighter. I think the stress of the entire process can't be outlined enough though. Good luck!
